OB/GYN in Silver Spring and Rockville, MD
I take pride in being able to offer treatment options to patients who thought they had none.
Dr. Randy Lizardo now concentrates solely on gynecologic health with a special focus on the management of fibroids, endometriosis, chronic pelvic pain, irregular bleeding, uterine prolapse, and urinary incontinence. He specializes in minimally invasive treatment options which include advanced laparoscopy, hysteroscopy, vaginal and robotic surgery. These techniques allow his patients to recover faster and have fewer complications than more traditional surgical approaches. Over 99% of his patients go home the same day of their procedures and most return to regular activity in days rather than weeks or months.
Dr. Lizardo has been accredited as a Master Surgeon in Minimally Invasive Gynecology by the internationally recognized Surgical Review Corporation and a Certified Surgeon of The Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology. He is currently licensed in DC, Maryland and Virginia and provides surgical services in multiple facilities. He is referred patients from across the DMV and has been consistently recognized by his peers as a Washingtonian Magazine Top Doc.
As an active educator, Dr. Lizardo has performed live surgery and has spoken at local and national conferences. He is a physician proctor for both laparoscopic and robotic surgery, where he travels and teaches surgeons minimally invasive techniques. As an Assistant Clinical Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at The George Washington University he has received numerous awards for medical student and resident education. He also volunteers his skills participating in international surgical missions.
GWU is also where Dr. Lizardo completed his medical school and residency training. He served as administrative chief resident of his program and was named the resident physician of the year upon graduation. He also received the Award for Overall Excellence and Demonstrating the Highest Level of Technical Proficiency in Surgical Obstetrics and Gynecology.
On an administrative level, Dr. Lizardo was the Founding Chair of Robotic Surgery of Holy Cross Hospital. He is currently the president of the Medical Executive Committee at The Maryland Surgery Center. He also serves as the Laser Safety Officer and Medical Director of Cosmetic Injectables at The Renew You Med Spa.
Outside the office, Dr. Lizardo and his wife enjoy traveling and trying the local cuisine. He spends a great deal of time with his large family and enjoys physical fitness and being outdoors either fishing or snowboarding.
